      Description

      See https://tracker.moodle.org/secure/attachment/41699/text_afterpatch.png

      I would suggest getting rid of every line of dashes except for the ones either side of the actual forum post content. Keep a blank link between the elements that are currently separated by lines of dashes.

      All those lines just add a bunch of unnecessary noise that drowns out the important stuff.
